Our Refugee Effort
We have sponsored two families in the last three years and we are in the process of sponsoring a third family who are arriving once the COVID-19 pandemic is over - that is our hope and prayer. It is a family of three with the youngest under a year old. They are Iranian, having escaped persecution, and now living in Turkey. They were being fast tracked to get to Canada after being approved by Canadian officials, but the COVID-19 put the whole process on hold. We rejoice in the fact that they have been given approval from the Canadian Embassy - this will ensure that they can stay in Turkey until they get to Canada - and not be returned to Iran where their lives are at risk.
A team has been established including Payam and Niloo, who we sponsored four years ago. We invite you to participate by praying for this family - that they will be given their travel visas to come to Canada soon.
We have now raised the funds required for the year of sponsorship. Thank you for giving to help this family!
